Energy City Features Cutting-Edge Projection Mapping

Opening this month at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Energy City is a 2,500-square-foot 3D landscape that represents Houston, the surrounding Gulf coastal waters, and the terrain of southeast and central Texas. Images on a vibrant 1/150th-scale white model are created using bleeding-edge projection-mapping technology via Green Hippo Hippotizer media servers to illustrate the energy value chain with dynamic animation as the entire tableau cycles from day to night.

Join  AJ Freysteinson, RabCup co-founder/creative director, who led the project with RabCup co-founder Justin Fortier, and Cory Froke, “super tech” for Green Hippo Special Projects, for Energy City: A Case Study at LDI2017.
